It’s one of the best-kept secrets in the Austin area, a music festival with small crowds, a lovely natural setting and close-in parking. Come discover the Austin String Band Festival held at Camp Ben McCulloch across the street from The Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood, TX. Dance all night on Friday, then attend hands-on music and dance workshops under the trees early on Saturday, then kick back for a day and night of nonstop fiddles, banjos and guitars as more than two dozen bands take the stage. Sunday wraps it up with a gospel jam. Featuring: Steam Machine, Lone Pinon, Jesse Leger and Bosco Stomp, Big City Fever, Stovetop Rangers, Chris Buckley and Jeff Moore, Lloyd and April Wright, Pace and Barber, Flat Earth Rounders and many more!
Camp Craig Allen, a nonprofit dedicated to physically disabled adults, children and veterans of North Texas, holds its annual fundraiser, the Amateur BBQ Cook-Off and Music Fest, October 11–12 at Toyota Stadium in Frisco.
